The Cristo Redentore is a statue of Jesus Christ in Maratea, southern Italy, realized in Carrara’s marble in 1965 by Bruno Innocenti, a sculptor from Florence.

History

On 9 September 1963 the Piedmontese entrepreneur Stefano Rivetti announced that a giant statue would be raised, with his own money, on the top of mount San Biagio, as a tribute for Maratea’s population.

The construction of the statue began in the late 1963, and was finished in 1965.

Meraviglioso posto. La vista da quassù è splendida. Non ha nulla da invidiare a quello più famoso di Rio. Unica pecca, 4€ per il parcheggio e navetta mi sembra alquanto un furto!
